Hi I’m Tania, the owner of Love thy Dog NZ, and I’m passionate about sharing what I have learned on my journey with my reactive dog Tia.


The ‘hard dogs’ are the ones with the most to teach us, and when we know better, we can do better with that knowledge. My own, dog reactive / human fear aggressive dog, Tia, inspired me to become a better owner. I needed to understand how I could help her and improve her quality of life.  I made a promise to keep her safe and my life changed forever. 

 I studied hard and gained a certification as a Canine Behaviour Consultant with IAABC . I left my corporate job and started my Dog Walking business in March 2016 and I now specialise in teaching owners how they can affect change with their dogs behaviour using reward-based methods.


I don't have a magic wand or offer a quick fix, but if you want to learn how to raise your puppies into good dogs; understand how dogs learn & strengthen your bond, or change behaviour, then I can help you with that.
